The family was recorded in the 1810 census of Christian County Kentucky.

William J. Bobbitt 

1 male under 10 (1800-1810)                   1 female under 10 (1800-1810) 

1 male 26 - 45 (1765-1784)                      1 female 16 - 25 (1785-1794)

The family in 1810 was William J. Bobbitt born in 1775, Wiley Madison Bobbitt born in 1809, Elizabeth Hale Bobbitt born in 1790, and Polly Bobbitt born in 1810.

William and his family moved from Kentucky to Missouri between the years of 1810 and 1816. The family lived in Missouri until the early spring of 1830 at which time they moved back to Morgan County, Illinois. Two of the children were born in Illinois, Elzorah in 1830 and Hardy in 1833. The best record of the family was in the federal census taken in Morgan County in 1830.

William J. Bobbitt:

1 male under 5 (1825-1830)        1 female under 5 (1825-1830) 

2 males 5 - 10 (1820-1825)         2 females 10 - 15 (1815-1820) 

1 male 10 - 15 (1815-1820)         2 females 15 - 20 (1810-1815) 

1 male 20 - 30 (1800-1810)         1 female 30 - 40 (1790-1800) 

1 male 50 - 60 (1770-1780)

Since one of the children was born after the census was taken the number of children in the family was eleven. Many of the descendants have stated there were only eleven children.

We have a record where William J. Bobbitt as Justice of the Peace performed a marriage in Missouri on January 31, 1829 and was in the state census of Illinois in 1830.
